Called "the pre-eminent male singer-songwriter of the New Folk movement" by Rolling Stone, John Gorka possesses a commandingly beautiful baritone voice. His articulate guitar playing compliments his superb lyrics on songs that are romantic, cosmic, poetic, haunting in their imagery or hilarious. Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed his songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O'Connell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown and has appeared on CNN.

With a tangle of songs that emotionally connect us all and leave a tender trace, John Gorka stimulates the cerebrum, keeps our smiles agile and fit and reconnects us with what really matters most in music: honesty. His atmosphere allows for the listener to feel his individualized attention, his lyrical tenderness, his care for the guitar and his true presence.

"Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs." -The Boston Globe
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Amilia K Spicer
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Amilia K Spicer will be John's special guest. With a sound that has traversed dynamic folk-pop, earthy rock, and atmospheric Americana, her music of evokes both a spirit of travel and a sense of place.
